I think so, matter of fact, I know so because I am one to a few males. 🙂
I am not really sure about this one. If both of the people are attractive head on straight it might be just a matter of time before they become something else. Question are you attracted to any of your male friends? What if they tried to talk to you how would you react?
Man you going to get some people in trouble with this one. LOL I am just going to say yes for all purposes because it is all based on the person for real. I have female friends that I would not be with at all. But being all honest some I do think are attractive I am human. It is hard.
I think so! I have male friends that I’ve never crossed that line with… good guys, head on straight, could even fit the mold of the guy I would want… but because if he’s my friend and I’ve never viewed him like that… I’m not attracted to him in a sexual manner. I found out through becoming on guys friend how much we have in common, but I just can’t see myself with him and he’s the same. We’re too close now as friends to mess it up… lol.
NS what if he was to say something to you about becoming more than friends?
I wouldn’t do it! The one particular guy I am speaking of is too much like me that we make great friends but probably not so great lovers. Plus the idea of being lovers is a lil weird to me… IDK if he would feel the same… we used to joke all the time that if we were both single at 40 we would be together just to have kids and the best friendship until we die! LOL But that wan’t real to me… just a joke
You can not have male friends. There is just no way to do it. I know I get along better with the opposite sex but there is usually some kind of attraction there. Think about it. As a women you are saying that you will not go there but if he goes there and you are single you will go there.
Yes a man and a woman can be friends. Why not. People do it all the time. It does not mean that anything is going on. you have to know the person and what they are capable of doing. Not everyone wants to be with every single person around them.
Males and females can just be friends….if that’s what they want to call it! lol
No seriously, Men and Female can just be friends it’s fine. Males and Females have been on this earth for thousands of years; I’m sure there has been plenty of bonafide friendships. I think what people fail to realize is that relationships are built on “attraction”. The attraction does not have to be romantic and then even if it was there is a certain level or romanticism that may not be crossed or may be crossed. You don’t have to remain just friends forever. Also relationships come and go, if you are just friends with some one and worry about ruining the relationship by going beyond “just friends”, you might as well go beyond just friends, because that relationship will always have that same level of “attractiveness” there. So you will basically be just friends with a person that you are attracted to and the relationship will most likely get destroyed by a person that you are not just friends with.
Man and women can’t be friends because most women and men don’t share the truths about each other until a window of opportunity presents themselves.This maybe one month or three years when the true feelings come out.. Hey ladies….. if your guy friend can be your bestfriend show-up with a trench coat at his door step and have something sexy underneath I garuantee he will be down on bending knees like Boyz II Men the group begging you to stay the night and then he’ll say I’ve always loved you classic…. Best thing for ladies to do if a male says can I be your friend run like hell please and hug the man in your life..
Yes females and males can be friends perhaps even best friends….for ex. I’m living proof of a picture perfect friendship from childhood to this current date.
I can be friends with a female in fact I get along better with female better than men. It does not mean anything at all. I have female friends that I have been cool with since I was a child. I do not want to be with them at all. We are just cool.
NOPE, NO, Negative… When your in a committed relationship or married why jeopardize it over a “friendship” ?? Maybe if it’s a mutual friend but I feel that it serves no purpose to have casual outside friendships with the opposite sex.. That just a opportunity waiting to present itself! Sad, but some pple just don’t respect Relationships like they should that’s why you have to have boundaries up front, so there’s no confusion 🙂
I am with you on that one but what if it is a long time friend?
Yes, if both of them are single or one of them is gay or lesbian! Lol… Being real though, if u are in a relationship and u want to have friends of the opposite sex, both u and the friend need to know AND respect the boundaries of the relationship. Which means that the nature of the friendship probably won’t be the same as it was when u both were single. On the other hand, when both parties are single, there is no guarantee that one or both of them won’t become attracted to the other. It is only natural for men and women to be attracted to each other and most of the time friends of the opposite sex have an attraction between them but they either choose to or not to act on that attraction.

Thanks for your beneficial post. Over time, I have come to be able to understand that the symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the actual build up associated fluid between lining of the lung and the torso cavity. The sickness may start in the chest spot and multiply to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include fat reduction, severe inhaling trouble, fever, difficulty eating, and infection of the neck and face areas. It needs to be noted that some people living with the disease tend not to experience just about any serious symptoms at all.

I have not checked in here for a while because I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂
I must say, as a great deal as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt assist but lose interest soon after a while. Its as if you had a fantastic grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to contain your readers. Possibly you need to think about this from far a lot more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better in case you think about what other people could have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction towards the topic. Think about adjusting your personal believed process and giving others who might read this the benefit of the doubt.
